Entries are now open for the North Sydney Art Prize 2022, a major biennial arts event showcasing some of the best in contemporary art by emerging, mid-career and established artists.

Artists from across Australia are invited to submit entries for the 16-day North Sydney Art Prize exhibition to be held from 14 to 29 May 2022 at the iconic Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability in Waverton. This unique site enables broad participation and accommodates the inclusion of all mediums. Indoor and outdoor works will be selected for exhibition in the Caretakers Cottage, Artist Studio, Platform, tunnels, 25 chambers and surrounding parklands. All proposals for the tunnels and chambers must first be discussed with the Curator prior to the submission of entries.
